The patrol

This is the moment of either letting go or ... not at all.

Love those cops' faces. The boldness of the stokes is awesome.

Wow that's amazing... love how you carve out the details from the black areas. Was this all digital or some traditional ink work too?

Parece que te cueste tan poco dibujar y narrar...

La mayor curiosidad que se me plantea al ver tus trabajos, es ver cosas antiguas. Si siempre tubiste un estilo parecido que evolucionó, o si vienes de un dibujo más realista que has limpiado.

Si algun día te apetece hacer un post con algun trabajo antigo, estaré vigilando.

-Thanks Adam, it was all done quickly, and joyfully! I'm glad you like it

-Thanks Le, the black and white was all marker on paper, and then scanned. Color was digital

-Muchas gracias Raul

-Thanks Leon, I actually worked on the feature film 'Asterix and the Vikings' that came out in 2006 designing pretty much everything related to the vikinks, locations and props (not the characters obviously!)

-Moltes gracies Ernest!

-Thanks a lot Nima!

-Moltes gracies Oriol, te dire que he passat per moltes fases, jo cuan tenia uns 17 anys estaba molt impresionat i influenciat per l'Hugo Pratt, i anava massa 'suelto'. Llavor vaig afinar mes el traç, no tenia tanta grapa pero em va ajudar a ser mes precis. El fet de treballar en animacio i estar exposat a molte altre gent tot el temps tambe ha estat una gran experiencie.
En cuant a lo de guardar dibuixos d'aquella epoca, si que tenc cosa pero tot a Palma, practicament res aqui.
Salutacions i gracies per la visita!

-Thanks George!

-Thank you Will, I like to pay as much attention as I can to atmosphere, To me...obviously together with character and lighting work it's what drives one into the story and keeps it going, the essence of the whole thing.
Thanks again for your visit and comment.
